Frosty Love at Anything But a Card, #49

It's getting hotter here in Colorado so I decided to get a little frosty.  A local stamp store just had a tremendous sale on Memory Box dies and I got a bunch for a really good price (thank you Cathy at Simple Pleasures!) so I decided to get to playing with my toys right away.

This project was really simple to make and this is how I did it:
What I Used to Make my Project:
Scrap Wood 7x7
Red Glitter Paper
Red "Suede" Paper
Memory Box Snowflake Heart Die, #99031
Silhouette Cameo
Cut File "Love with a Flourish", Silhouette Store, #55227
Silver Cardstock
Oblong Piece of Red Cardstock

I have had this piece of scrap wood for some time and when I saw Challenge #49 at Anything But a Card was Anything Goes I knew it was time to use it. The hardest part of making this was folding the glitter paper. I used a generic manufacturer and I don't know if that had anything to do with the troubles I had, trying to fold the paper around the wood and get it to stay glued was quite an ordeal.  Fortunately, armed with my bulldog clips and waxed paper I got the job done.

The next step was die cutting the heart - I even saved all the little snowflakes! I used suede paper (sometimes called velvet paper) to make the heart. I trimmed around the heart and them mounted it on an oblong piece of scrap red paper, then mounted that onto the glitter paper.

Then I used my Silhouette to cut out the Love word out of of heavy silver cardstock and placed that on the piece.  Once that was dry I was done :) I felt like I bit into a York Peppermint Pattie - hehehe! I hope you enjoyed my "Frosty Love" project and that your summer (or winter) is going well.
